so the deck was not hot when you went to the slide? It's definitely not a servers job to fetch your flip flops.

How about you give the guy a break. He was caught between a rock and a hard place,

My wife and I were on the Freedom a few years ago. We were enjoying the serenity deck. It was a very hot day. My wife was reading and I needed to cool off. I said , I am going down the slide and dip in the pool. I slid down the slide and cooled off in the pool. As I started back up the stairs , my bare feet were on fire. I jump from shaded spot to shaded spot trying to get back up to the serenity deck. I couldn’t make it. The deck was hot enough to fry an egg. I flagged down a waiter and tried explaining to him my predicament. It took a few tries to make him understand. I needed him to go up and retrieve my flip flops. He comes back down with my flip flops on a tray. My wife said a guy just came up here and took your flip flops lol. That waiter received a very nice tip. From now on , I hold my flip flops across my chest when going down the slide. 

I learned this on the Horizon. My foot hurt for the rest of the day, but the fun I had made me almost forget!

My goodness, y'all must be a bunch of tenderfoots from the frigid North!  I've walked across the decks in middle of July barefoot and didn't notice a thing.  Felt just as cool and comfy as carpet.  Lol I guess it comes from years of going barefoot in the hot summers on hot pavement in S. Texas.   I remember reading about this very thing before one of our cruises and I made all the kids pack water shoes and water socks, but we all did not see the need for them.  😉

Lol, moongal, I know you know how hot the pavement can get here in the summer.  I grew up popping tar bubbles in the street with my feet.  However, as I grew to adulthood & started wearing shoes more often, I noticed my feet are not as tough as they once were.  I'll keep my flip flops with me!

Well that was unnecessarily judgy.  No, it's not the server's job, but how nice for him to go above and beyond to give good service.   


Well said!
